    Those are probably just plain text or image that's why it can't be converted into a fillable PDF form.

    Anyway, to get the fields side by side, you just have to shrink them. You need to adjust the width of the field if they don't fit on the same line. Also, some of the fields are already grouped into one so you don't need to create them individually like the full name field and the address field. However, if you want to achieve the same format shown in the image, use the textbox field (Short Text Entry) for the names and addresses so you can separate break them into different lines.

    In addition, you might want to inject this CSS codes to your form to reduce the spacing between the shrunken fields as well as make the field label width to auto.

    .form-label-left, .form-label-right, .form-label-left.form-label-auto, .form-label-right.form-label-auto {

        width: auto !important;

        padding-right: 10px;

    }

    .form-line {

        padding: 12px 12px;

    }
